Re: Ori Redler 1964-2020

Eyal, although I never met Ori "live," I am devastated because of getting to know the two of you so well through cyberspace. I can only offer my condolences.

Re: Big Sur - is it OK to upgrade

If you need equations in your documents, then both Catalina and Big Sur are problems. MathType is supposed to be developing a version that will work, but that is not promised until sometime in 2021.

Re: Keeping caption and figure together

I have done further checking. I ran into problems previously when I inserted images in pdf format (making it possible for publishers to edit figures without having my original drawing-program files). As I recall, this created problems with some journals because they would translate the pdfs into Wor...

Re: Keeping caption and figure together

Wow, I never thought of that! Is this effect a bug or a feature? I don't understand the logic that must be driving this. It may be compelling. For years, I have used in-line wrapped figures because, when I have not, I have run into very annoying problems with exported versions of the manuscript. I d...

Re: Keeping caption and figure together

Ah, so you want the caption to be *above* the figure, now I understand. :–) There is a setting "Keep with next", where one specifies the number of lines in the next paragraph, but this does not seem to work when the next paragraph is an image. The Keep-with-next-field in the Paragraph style palette...

Re: Keeping caption and figure together

Sorry, I apparently did not explain well. Here's the picture Text... (paragraph style) Figure Caption (a tag flow with Figure Caption style) Image (e.g., a .png) (Figure Placement style) Text (paragraph style) If all of this appears low on a page, then Mellel may insert a page break between Figure C...

Keeping caption and figure together

I have an auto-title and style for Figure Title . The style specifies next paragraph as Figure Placement . I use this to insert figures that are typically .png images. How do I assure that the figure title and image remain together, rather than separated by a page break? There is a setting "Keep wit...

Selective acceptance of changes

As of now, if one selects a bunch of text and specifies that changes within the selection be accepted, this does not cause changes to be accepted within notes occurring in the selected text. Instead, it seems that one must select the notes one by one to accept changes. Two questions: 1. Would it be ...

Ah, thanks. My migration is between computers rather than apps. This should work.

Migrate spelling dictionary

Where is the user dictionary located and how can it be migrated? I am referring to the result of selecting an allegedly mis-spelled work and saying to "Learn spelling."

Re: Page break before auto-title

I edited the Auto-title stream (pencil) and, in my style for Chapter title (H1), I selected "Page break" in the menu for "Insert Before", which is one of title-flow attributes close to the top of the auto-title editing window. Did you do something different? Mine is working fine in Mellel 5. I just ...

Re: Keystroke for citation insertion Bookends-Mellel

Try the other forum so more smart people see it. I suspect that you have the same problem I have had from time to time, and have again today after updating to Mellel 5 and the most recent Bookends. It involves a failure of proper communication at the level of Apple Events. But perhaps it's something...
